Best Fuel Economy to Date in My 2009 Vue XR

Last week, I went on a 450 km trip and my 2009 VUE XR-6 averaged 7.7 L/100 km. Converted, it gives 36.7 MPG imperial, or 30.6 MPG US gallons. I was driving at 101 km/h (60 MPH) on the cruise control. We were 2 adults and a child, fully loaded with luggages. For a 3.6L V6, I think it is very, very acceptable! I like this machine!

On my way back, I hauled my RV trailer... so it just averaged 23 L/100 km with a full-front wind at 30~50 km/h. Even F-150s hauling trailers were "dancing and swinging" on the road!
